The best option for showing off a tanned tone the whole year long in a healthy way is the self-tanner due to its speed and because it avoids exposing to sun rays that age the skin prematurely, causing irreparable damage.
Almost 30 years after appearing on the market they have evolved significantly. The generation of self-tanners that left the skin orangey and an unpleasant smell is now history. The latest advances have managed to modify the formulations to prevent the undesirable effects, orangey tone, uneven and unpleasant smell.
Most expert users prefer gradual self-tanners that increase their intensity little by little by repeating applications and leave a very natural healthy tone.
Which is the most recommendable texture to achieve a uniform tan?
The most recommendable is that it has a light texture, like the self-tanning milk that allows a simple, fast application absorbing in very little time.
Doctor Patricia Ricarte, Director of Germaine de Capuccini’s Technical Advisor Department, reveals the beauty secret to achieve a natural, uniform colour in just 3 simple steps:
- Exfoliate: to achieve clean skin, free of imperfections and dead cells, preparing it for later cares such as the self-tanner.
- Hydrate: we recommend that the skin is hydrated before applying the self-tanner to maintain it supple and smooth and achieve a natural tanned tone without streaks and very luminous.
- Apply self-tanner: spread the product downwardly on the body and apply on the face outwardly, avoiding the hair line and eyebrows. Wash your hands after application.
